I said Ultra-mega, but what I may have meant was ULTRA-MEGA!!!
This scarf is so huge, I can lay it across our queen size bed as a foot/Felix blanket. This scarf is sooo huge, curiosity got the better of me and for the first time ever I measured one of my completed crochet projects.
It’s 255cm long and 38cm wide. That’s 100 inches long and 15 inches wide.
What’s more, it’s mega warm. I actually was in a light sweat while weaving in the ends. I bought this wool on eBay from a lovely lady, and the skeins had little labels with the names of the sheep the wool came from. The outer white stripes are from Kelly, the black wool stripes are from Curly, and the middle white stripe came from Pixie. Sadly the grey stripes didn’t come with a name tag, so I named the mystery sheep Storm.
Storm and Curly’s wool are still tacky with the sheeps’ natural lanolin. My hands felt so soft at the end of those rows and it seems to be marvellous at retaining warmth.
As it grew on my lap, Sweetheart kept putting it over himself. I think he likes it. It makes us both giggle how monstrously large this scarf is, but there’s absolutely no question we are warm when we wear it!
